Top Ten Highlights from Josh Anderson’s Life Story

Josh Anderson Blog Highlights Headerl

Here are the Top 10 Highlights from Josh Anderson’s life story that you can apply in your own life:

  1. While facing difficult circumstances, God wants to do a work in us, despite the outcome of our circumstances
  2. When you get broken you get desperate to change
  3. The people you spend the most time with will influence you the most
  4. Even when we’re on death’s door, God will use us to make an eternal difference in people’s lives, if we’ll allow him to work through us
  5. In Christ, we are accepted, no matter what. We’re not defined by what our Facebook status says or anything else outside of Jesus’ acceptance.
  6. Jesus completes us & gives us everything we need.
  7. Jesus forgives us. There is no depth too low that He can’t pull us out
  8. Seeking Jesus first doesn’t give us everything money can buy, it gives us everything money can’t buy: peace, fullness, joy
  9. A Relationship cannot and will not provide everything you think you need in life. Only Jesus can
  10. Being in God’s will is where we experience the fullness of God

Community Week 2: Spiritual Progress

In this special message for week two of Community: Your Pathway to Progress, New Passion shared a video message from Andy Stanley, senior pastor of the campuses of North Point Community Church. In this message Andy helps us explore the positive impact that structured relationships have and how we need to enter these sometimes forced relationships for the spiritual progress they provide.

2012 ONE27 Turkey Project

November begins one of the most exciting times of the year at New Passion. There is no greater time of the year for us as a church to practice the Revolutionary Compassion that we often talk about in our services and in our Community Groups. People have needs all throughout the year, but they tend to be enhanced during the holiday months.

New Passion is joining forces with United We Care again this Thanksgiving to provide 30 families a complete Thanksgiving meal. For $20, you can provide a whole turkey and all of the fixins to a family who is in desperate financial need within our community. 100% of all donations will go directly to United We Care for this project.

How Can I Help?

We are glad you asked! You can donate $20 for every meal that you would like to provide for a family in the following ways:

  • Check – Please memo “ONE:27 Turkey Project”
  • Cash – Please use an offering envelope on Sunday and write “ONE:27 Turkey Project” on the “Other” line.
  • Online through PayPal

Thank You New Passion Church and CSRA

I would like to personally thank those at New Passion Church and in the CSRA who stepped up big over the weekend to help tornado victims in Ringgold, Georgia.

The results of your generosity resulted in filling up a 12-foot enclosed trailer and the back storage compartment of a Chevy Tahoe with bottled water, chain saws, work gloves, and other work supplies along with a bunch of personal items like diapers, baby wipes, deodorant, tooth paste, etc.

My family at New Passion never cease to amaze me at your desire to share revolutionary compassion with those who are in distress. This has been a part of our DNA since before we launched the church. Although we are young and small, we have tried our best to answer every opportunity that is presented to us to help people! It’s encouraging that with every opportunity you all go to a whole new level in your sacrifice for others.

The reality is, it’s not over! The people of Ringgold, Georgia and the surrounding areas still need our help. We are currently working to secure a more prominent location to collect supplies this weekend along with the ability to transport more supplies for phase two. It is imperative that you continue to spread the word, stay up-to-date on the needed supplies and if you haven’t contributed already, be sure to help this weekend, of course, if you’ve contributed already but would like to do more, you are more than welcome to do more! Go to and stay up-to-date with the current information and be sure to email it, tweet it, post it, or tell it!

Shine On!

Lead Pastor

Ringgold Tornado Relief

It was around this time last year we were rallying everyone together to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the people of Nashville as they were facing the aftermath of a 100 year flood. Today, we are asking you to step-up again and to help those within our own state who have been devastated by one of the hundreds of tornadoes that touched down in the South over the last few days.

We have set-up a relief page to give you all of the information you need to donate supplies and finances to help with this cause. It is in the darkest moments of people’s lives that the light of Jesus gets to shine the brightest. New Passion, let’s step-up and sacrifice for our fellow citizens and friends in Ringgold, Georgia and the surrounding areas. We definitely want you to keep these people in your prayers, but these are the moments we don’t have to pray about helping.

Please visit the Tornado Relief Page to get involved right away!

Thank you for your compassion and your generosity.
